Each week CK Engineers will be trying to give you a picture of the state of one of the disciplines we work with, the Validation Engineers jobs market. Whether you are a Validation Engineer looking for a new role or an employer seeking new Validation Engineers to join your team, keeping up to date with industry news that impacts you is essential.
Our tracking is based on each week screening some of the UKs leading vacancy boards for how many Validation Engineer jobs have been advertised within the last 7 days. Please bear in mind that there is likely to be some repetition across jobs boards and some duplicate posting but our goal is to build up a picture of trends over time.
This week’s summary is for week commencing 29th February 2016 for the past week and relates to Validation Engineer vacancies posted on:
- The Engineer
- Just Engineers
Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 376 Validation Engineer jobs were published in the last week,
- 245 permanent roles
- 131 contract roles
After 5 solid weeks of growth, the Validation Engineering job market has fallen by 23%. This is the result of a decline in permanent vacancies, as in contrast contract roles increased by 18%. It is likely that we will continue to see this pattern of slowing permanent recruitment over the coming few weeks as we grow closer to the end of the tax year.
